Abstract

Each tooth in the permanent dentition presents with extensive variation in the anatomy of root, along with variation in the number of canals in individual roots. The existence of accessory canals should be considered in all teeth since failure to clean and fill them can have poor impact on prognosis. Thus, it is extremely important for a clinician to keep abreast with the complete assessment of the anatomy and morphology of root canal system for a favorable treatment outcome. Mandibular premolars often present with a variation in anatomy and, thus, considered as a perplexity to the endodontist. This article reports clinical cases of bifurcated canals in mandibular first premolars.
